Does My Home Need a Radon Test?
Radon is a deadly gas that is created as uranium decays below the surface of the earth. It is a carcinogen that is considered a national health problem. Because it is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, it is an extremely dangerous element that cannot be detected by conventional means. For the reasons listed below, it is imperative to have your home tested for radon:
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers
It is extremely difficult to detect
Radon can access homes through small cracks and openings in the walls, floors, and other areas
Regardless of when and where the home was built, radon can be found in any home in the Charleston area
Radon Inspections with Immediate Results
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) highly encourages radon inspections for all homes listed on the market. This is the only way to uncover any possible radon issues inside your Charleston area home. Radon testing from Step By Step Inspections consists of a continuous 48-hour radon gas test. When the test is complete, results are immediately available.
New Homes & Radon Testing
While many believe that newly built homes cannot contain radon, this is simply not true. While the building materials may be new, the soil on which the home is constructed can certainly contain radon. Your local Step By Step Inspections team recommends radon testing for your new home construction in Charleston and the surrounding areas.
